Alfred's TakeAlfred's Take

You can expect increased stability throughout the life of the tire, exceptional performance, and responsive handling in most driving conditions.

The Ziex ZE960 all-season high-performance tire also delivers confidence to its drivers while keeping its driver in control of the vehicle.


The Ziex ZE950 was not a bad tire, so you can expect a great performance as well from its successor.

You can take advantage of Falken’s 30-day trial guarantee to check out these tires.

It will be a good choice to pick if you do not drive through unploughed winter roads or you could just get snow chains.

  1. I loved these tires till they got to the wear bars. So loud you can’t have a conversation in the car. I don’t think I have 40k miles on these tires. All highway. I’m switching brands but for the price ($300 for 4) they were a good value.
